Death of a bookworm foretold: "Current signs are that you will someday be found, presumably by neighborhood children, crushed beneath your TBR pile, long striped feet sticking out from under the books like those of a bibliophiliac Wicked Witch of the East."

My life is run by a portly old beagle-mutt, a hyper lab-hound puppy, and a rowdy foundling kitty.

in short: flaming history geek, w/ many addictions: books, movies, shoes, books, SFF (Star Wars, LOTR, HP), books, Francis Crawford of Lymond, costume dramas, books, etc. Did I mention books? Books, yay.

*I know, I know, it's granddaddy of all What These People Need Is a Honky books, but still.
